Handy pollen/hayfever status web app that I’ll surely be using daily this summer:

I use @culturedcode’s Things to track pretty much everything I do, so I’m looking forward to May’s long-awaited V3:

It’s not often said, but well done @BTCare/@OpenreachGB. First working day after reporting intermittent broadband: engineer visited + fixed.

Previous series of The Walking Dead disappeared from Sky Box Sets today. Found them on Amazon Prime video instead. Bad form, @SkyHelpTeam.

“The 50 Best Britpop Albums”. Not sure all are /Britpop/, but god, I own and still listen to almost all of these.

iOS 10.3 brings wifi and 4G calling for O2 (UK). NB: you need to disable their TU Go service (my request is pending) http://www.o2.co.uk/help/network-coverage-and-international/wifi-and-4g-calling

Very strong morning at #WXGFIVE . Highlight was relearning everything about social media from @TheSocialChain’s omnipotent @SteveBartlettSC.

I’m in Covent Garden, London, not far from today’s attack and marking myself safe.

Samuel’s story: a heartwarming, eye-moistening video, no matter who you support.

Sitting in today’s product demo at work and realising that my age now qualifies me for our “mature” online dating sites #oldfogey

Great memories of Chelmsford and gigs in my youth listening to @BBClamacqshow earlier tonight: The Army & Navy, The Y and @BassmentBar

Really happy to see that #webmention is now a W3C recommendation. 👏 @aaronpk and all @indiewebcamp implementers.

Pushed my Micropub client live - Micropublish https://micropublish.net - just in time for the new year. Now time for a few drinks. Happy NY!

My 2017-01-01 IndieWeb commitment is to complete my rewrite of Micropublish to support Micropub updates, deletes and undeletes. My site’s Micropub endpoint supports these methods so I now need to bring my client up to date.

Performed by only the most skilled, a Lucky Barry is a crap where bog roll is only required for posterity. In essence it’s the perfect crap with no mess. Handy when attempting to take a crap in the woods. “There was no bog roll in the shitter, thank God it was a Lucky Barry.”

TIL: Lucky Barry.

London #indieweb people: join us at Homebrew Website Club tonight at 6pm in Covent Garden.

My MacBook Pro is almost always closed and plugged in to a display. I’d love to buy a wireless keyboard with TouchID for 1Password/Apple Pay.

Success rate of my Apple Watch unlocking my MacBook Pro is now in the 90s% 👍

So I’ve been hacking away for a couple of months but I think I’m almost there with my new personal website/engine.

My aim has been to rebuild to support the latest Micropub draft specification, including full edits and deletes/undeletes via JSON, and pass the Micropub.rocks and Webmention.rocks test suites.

I’m now at 100% for both and I suppose all that’s left is to refactor a tiny bit, import my content, write it up and then push it live. It’s tempting to keep tinkering but I think I’ll learn more from selfdogfooding and getting it out in the wild.

A friend looking for a project mgmt job for 4 months asked for help from friends on Facebook. Within a week has 3 job offers. Recruitment.
